MARISOL ARGÜELLES – DERIVES OF ART AND ARCHITECTURE 🗓 🗺

DERIVES OF ART & ACHITECTURE

The house/studio Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.

From the domestic space to the public dimension

Conversation with Marisol Argüelles

For our fourth session of Derives of Art An Achetectureen <Arte Abierto> we have as a guest the curator and researcher Marisol Argüelles. 

The Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo, is composed by four architectural bodies built between 1929 and 1934, it was created as the home of two of the most iconic figures of the cultural environment of the 20th century: Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Its architect, Juan O’Gorman, conceived these spaces as “inhabiting machines” through workshops and studios that are the guiding axis of his architectural design.

From its restoration in the 1980s, its private nature was altered to become a public site, also modifying the way of being inhabited.

< Arte Abierto > continues with its new public program “Derivas de arte y arquitectura”, which seeks to renew our gaze on the architectural legacy of Mexico City. From a series of talks focused on rescuing the parallel stories of emblematic architectural projects and public spaces that have witnessed the variable intersection between art and architecture. In this first stage, the program deals mainly with modern architecture, based on a series of talks given by invited curators, architects, artists and urban planners.

With this program, ways of returning to architecture part of its public, experiential, collective character and close to those of us who inhabit the city are tested, recognizing in it its condition as a living archive. From these talks, circumstances, contexts and anecdotes are revealed that have been part of his sensitive memory and that complement his material memory, a relationship that often escapes documentary narratives and academic accounts.

The objective of the drifts is to generate experiences of spatial rediscovery, which allow us to renew our gaze on the legacy of certain emblematic architectural and artistic works, as well as those that have been forgotten.

The derives will be carried out free of charge on the last Saturday of each month, at 1:00 p.m. with a limited capacity.
